As dancers and performers, we see everything as art. —Lil Buck
Watch Lil Buck light-footedly dance and glide past Cézanne and Degas; Picasso and Matisse in Paris at the Foundation Luis Vuitton. I will definitely visit this museum on my next trip to Paris (March 2017). The flying architecture of Frank Gehry is yet another reason to discover this gem in the leafy forests of the Bois de Boulogne.
I love to dance in museums (sometimes they even let you if you don’t touch the paintings… .) Art is inspiring. In fact, I first touched upon art-inspired movement at the Rodin Museum, also in Paris, when I was 18. I was so deeply moved by The Kiss, my body responded with dance. I write about this in my post Rodin Woke Me Up. Also while young and hypnotized by the languid pastel water lilies, all my senses responded and I was moved to taste a Monet. And I did—at the Musee de L’Orangerie. What does art taste like? Read my story “Licking Monet” in Wild Life: Travel Adventures of a Worldly Woman.
